Question about Ford Futura
Replace the rotors or you may be able to have them turned. Chek your local repair shops, parts stores, or machine shops for this service.
Once you replace or have them turned it is vitally important to torque the lug nuts to the proper speck. Improperly torqued lug nuts are the most common cause for warped rotors.

most likely a brake line causing problem. it is either the rubber hose or caliper sticking. the rubber hose will collapse and cause pressure to stay on the caliper

It seems now a days that everyone loves to turn rotors, the only reason to turn a rotor is if it is running out, what this means is that
it is moving back and forth and not in a straight line. What a brake tec is suppose to do is place a dial caliper on the rotor and spin it and see if it is running out,if it is then it must be turned,as long as the rotor is not under the mfg min width. Any vibration,pulsing,shudder,
would tell me that it needs to be turned, just wanted to explain the reason behind it. Any other questions please post back as everyone is more than happy to help.

SOURCE: Replacing front wheel bearings
It isn't a particularly hard job but there are a few techniques that you need to know.
I wouldn't recommend you do it yourself but I would recommend you do it under supervision of someone who knows their stuff.
Retensioning the bearings correctly is extremely important.

SOURCE: changing rear brake bulb
I have a '98 build EL Falcon. If the tail light assembly hasn't been out before, inside the boot there are these 2 locating pins coated in plastic. These are attached near the outer edge of the assembly, running inside the boot. The square shaped hard plastic bits protruding inwards are for screws to attach to - so don't remove these. I had to get the plastic off to free the locating pins to remove the assembly. The second part is the 2 screws towards the reverse light end of the assembly. You access these from the outside of the car. Once these are undone the assembly should come out far enough to access the bulbs - as wiring is attached. There are 3 accessible bulbs available to replace. The brake light and the indicator bulb holders are in line with each other and you twist them out of the assembly, then remove the actual bulb and replace. To replace the assembly, put the locating pins into position and then the rest until sitting correctly and re-install the 2 screws.

The smell could be a number if things. First check your front wheel bearings and axle boots. Any grease getting on or near something hot like your brake rotor can cause this type of smell. Also check for any brake fluid leaks in the area. Hope these suggestions help.
